Introducing NORDI Chocolates from Fazer
For the past 127 years, Fazer has been making some of the most delicious chocolates and other confections for people from around the world. They've no launched a new line of chocolates, "NORDI" produced by their state-of-the-art facility in Finland. It's 100% sustainably sourced with non-GMO ingredients, 70% cacoa and all the cacao comes from UTZ, Rainforest Alliance, or Fairtrade Cocoa Sourcing Programme. More importantly though ... how does it taste?
Before I even get into the actual retail packaging that you guys will be seeing, I want to give NORDI Chocolates props for the media kit that they sent. It says a lot about a brand when they spend time to craft quality materials and their packaging - both retail and media kit - was excellent with a fun, but serious look that made me want to immediately open it.
While you could dismiss the packaging, ultimately I was impressed at the level of detail including the way the bar itself was designed.
Thankfully, it tastes great too.
They sent four different flavors - Smooth & Rich Original, Sea Buckthorn & Salty Caramel, Hazelnut & Campsite Coffee, and Raspberry & Tangy Licorice. All are dark chocolate with 70% cacao.
My favorite was the Hazelnut and Campsite Coffee - above - since it has a good texture that isn't too bitter nor sweet and the nuts were plentiful as well.
However, ultimately I was maybe most surprised with the Raspberry & Tangy Licorice because I simply wasn't expecting to like it. It's difficult to describe since people either hate ... or love Licorice. I'm not a big fan of the flavor, however in here with the raspberry it worked and I really enjoyed it.
Beyond anything else, what I enjoyed about this pack of four bars that they sent me was that it inspired me to travel to Finland and learn a bit about the culture through both the flavors and art on the packaging.
Fazer NORDI Chocolates can be found in Premium Grocery and Specialty Retailers nationwide.
